Black bean burgers

First I must say this isn't the best picture. I really need a new camera.
Spring weather. Warm days, cool nights. ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Getting ready for the bbq and stove top instead of that oven that heats everything up. First up, Spicy Black Bean Burgers one of my husband's favorites, he's been begging me to make it. Another one of our favorites is her Mushroom Pecan Burgers. This recipe is from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau at Compassionate Cooks. I love Colleen, does that sound weird? Well I say this because I found her website and started listening to her podcasts shortly after becoming vegan. She really helped realize that I did make the right choice in becoming vegan. Anyways, back to the food. I make my own focaccia bread and brush olive oil, oregano and red pepper flakes on top. For the burger part I made a cilantro pesto, spread that on the inside of the bun, then add the black bean burger, lettuce, red onion, tomato and avocado. Also if you have some of that spicy miso mayo you can squirt some of that on there too if you choose. YUM!


  1. I would go crazy for that burger! Amazing flavors! I loooove cilantro, black beans and avocados so I would really enjoy this meal!

  2. Yum! And I totally love sweet potato fries.

  3. Those sound delicious!
    I long for the day my husband begs me to make vegan food. :) He happily eats it, but we've not gotten to the begging stage...

  4. It's been too long since I've had a bean burger. This post has inspired me!! I love sweet potato fries too...mmm
